The sparking of the purifier by the plug is NOT good. it can be a fire hazard. there is a short within the switch. the best thing is to make sure that your under warranty and then call the manufacturer to get a replacement.

There is a blue spark and bug zapping sound-looks like its sparking on the ceramic ozone plate. The place looks fine-no cracks.


It's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The bug zapping sound is from dust particles in the air, that's being pulled thru the unit. However, it should not being doing in continuously (unless your home is really dusty), it may simply need cleaning. Cleaning the unit, about once a month is recommended.

Hope this helped you.

My Flair smells like it is burning and the plates are making a loud sparking sound


What's burning is probably your high voltage transformer. When your glass plates get a crack in them, they will spark. You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

Sharper image ionic breeze quadra air purifyer


I believe you have the same problem I have with my quadra. They have a fuse that is located in a very hard to reach area in the lower section of the unit. You have to look very closely to even find it. It's sodered in place place so one can't just change the fuse and turn it back on. Mine is blown and I can't figure out how to remove it. I was wondering if I could just by pass it but that wouldn't be safe.

I have a lc1060 where do you put the vicks and the water at... Can you please Help me


What you have is an "air purifyer ionizer", not a humidifyer. humidifyers warm up and some people like to use vicks vapor rub. But you don't own one of those. So no you would be able to do that with this machine.

Sparks bluish bright purplish? very small sparks, after plugging in to wall socket. also rythmically every 3 seconds a cracking sound is heard concomittantly ..???!


Sounds like it needs a good cleaning. Does this one have the metal bars that pull out? I have a ionic pro and when it gets dirty it will emit small sparks where the dust connects from one bar to the other. It also has a pull up wand that cleans the wire that help build the charge. If this is the system that changes the charge on the ions to attract them to plates, you will see small sparks when it becomes dirty. Mine always let me know by the sparking sounds it makes.
